flu *maybe TMI**

Yep. I've got it. :-( started a few days ago with a sore throat and cough. Turned into a head cold. Now, it's 4:30am, my arms and legs are weak and shaky feeling, my stomach is cramping and I'm afraid to get too far from the bathroom. This sucks!
What's worse, I have to go to work. The rule is we can't call in unless we get our shift covered. Well, I'm already covering for someone else and it's an opening shift. I can't call anyone who would be awake and able to be there in 1 hour. :-\ but, I don't feel that it's right or fair to go to work with the flu.
On top of all that, I am supposed to marry my wonderful, amazing DF this afternoon at the courthouse. Nothing fancy, but I was SO excited! This puts such a damper on the whole day...

A restaurant. I'm not okay with possibly (highly likely) infecting other people. However, I can't afford to lose my job...

go in and let them know you have the flu...if they give you grief, call the health dept anon on them, and report that they make their employees go to work sick...at a restaurant, that is a big NO NO....

They can't afford for you to get the whole restaurant sick either. Nor the population of your town. You need to start calling
